Alfred Friendly Press Partners Fellowship opens for Entries


timthumbThe Alfred Friendly Press Partners Fellowship is now accepting applications from early-career professional journalists in the print, broadcast and online mediums from developing countries with proficiency in English.

The six-month fellowship will provide fellows with basic and advanced hands-on instruction at the Missouri School of Journalism and place them in leading U.S. newsrooms.

Applicants who must have at least three years of professional experience, current full-time employment as a journalist, be between 25 and 35 years old must have a good level of spoken and written English.

The Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships are aimed at providing fellows with experience in reporting, writing and editing that will enhance future professional performance; transferring knowledge gained during the programme to colleagues at home; and fostering ties between journalists in the United States and other countries.

The next programme will start in mid-March and end in early September 2018. The fellowship begins with a two-week orientation at the Missouri School of Journalism, followed by placement in leading U.S. newsrooms.

Fellows receive travel, health insurance and basic living expenses.

Deadline for submission of application is August 31, 2017.
